Back to the Future: President Obama to Welcome '85 Bears to White House


Maybe the invitation got lost in the mail?  It only took 26 years but the World Champion 1985 Chicago Bears will finally be visiting the White House on October 7th according to CSN Chicago’s David Kaplan.  Their Super Bowl celebration was cut short just a couple of days after their 46-10 win over the Patriots when the space shuttle Challenger tragically exploded during takeoff, killing everyone on board.

Most of the team and coaching staff are expected to attend.  I’m most interested to see how Da Coach, a well known Republican, interacts with the Democrat Obama.  Once upon a time, Ditka was being pushed to run for the Senate seat that Obama eventually won.  Can you imagine what would’ve happened if Ditka had accepted the GOP’s bid to run for that Senate seat?  President Ditka?  That would be a step back – Ditka is God!

    I know this has nothing to do with the post, but what happend to the Mad Scientist posts? It really dug into the play calling and what was going down on the field. I loved that bit every week.

      Fair question shinrich. City, a frequent reader and part time contributor, headed up the Mad Scientist posts and unfortunately, he hasn’t been able to contribute yet this season. I’ll add this comment in his fan mail and see if I can coax him out of semi-retirement.
